Profile

To find a sound technique and a matured temperament is a rarity these days but the Zimbabwe-born Gary Ballance has got both in his repertoire.

A highly regarded left-handed batsman in the county circuit, Ballance played his initial cricket for Zimbabwe when he participated in the 2006 ICC U19 Cricket World Cup. A good show earned him a contract with Derbyshire where he fared well in whatever chances he got to play. Due to the lack of opportunity with that club, Ballance signed an academy contract with Yorkshire at the end of the 2007 season. Courtesy some strong batting, he confirmed his place in the playing XI and was one of the top performers for the club in the summer of 2011. Ballance also got the opportunity to feature in the high-profile Champions League when his side Yorkshire qualified for the 2012 edition. He went on to earn a place in the England Lions squad for the one-day tour to Australia in 2013 before finally receiving a call up to the national side for the T20Is against New Zealand.
